Get Fishing is the Angling Trust’s campaign to get more people fishing more often. Each year we run hundreds of events for all ages and abilities. They are funded by the Environment Agency from fishing licence income
Beginner angling events - want to get into fishing? Get back into angling, find out where to go fishing, accessible venues, who to go fishing with, tackle to use to start fishing and how to go fishing for the first time.
Fishing can be prescribed to help physical and mental health and wellbeing issues. Get Fishing for Wellbeing Approved Partners use quality assured angling services to treat symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, depression, loneliness and many long-term conditions
This year the 12-month, 3-rod trout and coarse fishing licence commemorates much loved angler John Wilson with a painting of his favourite fish, the Wensum river roach. The new licences are available from today.
To celebrate the new Environment Agency licences, we’re offering you the chance to win a 12-month, 3-rod trout and coarse fishing licence along with some fantastic angling goodies including a Korum X25 Accessory Chair, a Guru End-Tackle Pack, an Airflo SuperFlo line and copies of the Get Fishing ‘how to’ guide to angling book filled with top tips on coarse, sea and fly fishing.
All you need to do is comment with a picture you’ve taken of your own favourite catch on our Facebook post HERE and write a few words to tell us why, then share the post.
Do that and you’ll be in with a chance to win one of these awesome prizes. What’s more, we’ve asked John’s daughter Lisa Wilson to choose her favourite comments and pictures to win these great prizes…
